Soaked in Your Radiant Garden of Spring’s Delight. A Birthday Dedication to Shauna Bowling
Shauna and pet. Happy Soul's Day!
"Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you.
We love your soul's rainbow-dreams,
Promise-play." -Sri Chinmoy.
"Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy, happy, birthday.
God gives my Heart, from His Heart,
A very special ray." - Sri Chinmoy.
To Shauna, a most wonderful and beautiful Spirit
The dark fog of winter disperses, as spring beckons anew,
Nightingales chant verses; sapphire moon illuminates the eve.
The everglade lamps of nature’s beauty, dance beneath my gaze,
In a spectacle of charisma.
The mystic symphonies; the wafts of daffodils;
Azaleas light up the pathways of lunar change,
As I waltz to the elegance of hyacinths and tulips.
Hands clasped tightly together we walk;
The blossoming magnolias, now cradling my Beloved,
As She draws Her gaze into my chest; embraces me,
Whispering to the quickening rhythms of my Spirit.
O Love, You stand timeless, without tomorrows or yesterdays,
As I inhale the fragrance of Thy breath,
Soaked in Your radiant garden of Spring’s Delight.

"O Light, O unparalleled transformer of darkness,
You illuminate my shadows; cascade candles on my abyss,
Flooding my path with effulgence,
To grant me Love." -Manatita
"My own gratitude Heart, is all that matters." -Sri Chinmoy.
My Gratitude Heart, always knows the way.
My Gratitude Heart, always is the way." -Sri Chinmoy.

Every day I need." -Sri Chinmoy."
Quotes on Love by Sri Chinmoy and Christ
"My love throbingly says: “God is all blessing.” God’s Love smilingly says: “My child is all gratitude.”
Love radiates the life of harmony,
brightens the joy consciousness and sharpens the sword of intuition.
Love is always ready to meet man’s every soulful demand.
Love conquers all that is unlike God.
It is, indeed, supreme over all.....
No time-born desire can rend my love of light.
My love of light flies beyond the widespread net of death.
Mine is the love that has the birthless origin and the deathless end."- Sri Chinmoy
"This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you." - John 15: 12.
Andre Rieu's music of Spring
Sri Chinmoy on birthdays
“Each birthday is a new awakening. Each birthday is a new hope. Each birthday is a new promise. Each birthday is a new fulfilment….
Each birthday is a tune, a melody of the universal music. Each individual is also a melody of the universal music. The seeker grows and grows in his music, which he can hear with his soulful ears. The very presence of the soul-child inside us is what grants us a taste of the universal music…
Each birthday is a petal of a flower. The flower, petal by petal, blossoms and then it is ready to be placed at the inner shrine in the aspiring heart…
At every moment, God, the Author of all good, celebrates the seeker’s birthday.”_ Sri Chinmoy.
